Can a lone girl rabbit - with the odds stacked against her - surprise Jimmy and the other animals to win the big treehouse construction contest? In this stunningly illustrated you-go-girl-rabbit tale, Paisley shows how imagination and perseverance mean you can build anything

When the school year starts out, Jimmy Squirrel, whose dad owns the biggest construction company in the city, challenges a close group of friends to a treehouse contest. To everyone's surprise, Paisley Rabbit, who has never touched a hammer or a nail and has no one to help her, joins the contest as a long shot to win. But as things heat up, Paisley shows she has some tricks up her sleeve.

A delightful tale of defying the odds and believing in yourself that, alongside playful illustrations, kids will want to read over and over.

The first edition of Paisley Rabbit and the Treehouse Contest won two awards including best picture book in the Next Generation of Indie Book Awards, and was named 2018 BOOK OF THE YEAR by Creative Child Magazine 2018.
